    Overview

    NBA Showtime features the same arcade 2 on 2 style of NBA Jam and NBA Hangtime. One of the NBA teams is chosen, then two players from that team are chosen. At half time two different players can be chosen to switch out the current ones. NBA Showtime also features the "on fire" feature. If a player makes 3 consecutive shots they become on fire and can not only make shots at a much higher percentage, the player can also goal tend without penalty. The announcer from NBA Jam ( Tim Kitzrow) returns after an absence from NBA Hangtime. NBA Showtime also features a create a player mode as well as the initials and PIN system for record keeping.
